The 1000th episode of Smackdown last night was full of surprises, superstar returns and nostalgia. One of the highlights perhaps came in the middle of the advertised Evolution reunion. The legendary faction of Triple H, Batista, Ric Flair and Randy Orton reformed on this milestone episode of Smackdown, with Batista leading the charge.
The segment has led to huge amounts of speculation amongst fans as to whether Batista is gearing up for a return match. The Animal boasted that Triple H has done everything in WWE, except defeat Batista. This led to a brief stare-off and tension between the two, before Flair broke things up.
This is not the first time Batista has mentioned this match, last year on the Talk is Jericho Podcast Batista said:
“I said I would come back and run a whole program with Hunter. That’s the only thing I’m interested in and they’re just not interested in it.”
Only time will tell what this all means, but it certainly has the rumour mill spinning about a potential final run of matches between the Evolution partners.
